Designed by Björn Berger, a successful industrial designer born in Solingen, Germany, the Epicure is a finely edited collection of precision-forged, full tang cutlery. This carbon steel Wusthof Epicure Cook's Knife sports a new blade shape with dynamic, modern lines, and an inviting handle design using the same mid-tone, wood composite material found in high-end Epicurean cutting boards. This knife is ergonomically crafted for optimum comfort. As such, the handles are purposefully sculpted to reduce fatigue and look beautiful in the kitchen. Due to the knife's weight and balance, it is also perfect for heavy-duty work such as cutting thicker vegetables and meats. Paying homage to the signature feature of many Wusthof cutlery collections, the handle of each Epicure knife is sturdily fastened with two stainless steel rivets. This blade is sure to be the kitchen's workhorse or the essential kitchen knife that can be used for chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing.
